Congratulations to Joanna Bieda and Kamieko Goines who were appointed as youth legislators to their respective Nevada Senatorial Districts, 4 and 5. These young women have been selected to represent 27,000-42,000 youths in their Districts, draft legislation, and push forth the type of productive dialogue those they represent wish to hear. Sworn in to office, they are working with their district Senators and Assemblymen as well as collaborating with our District Youth Advisory Council to discuss issues and concerns affecting the youth within their community and within our state. They also provide support for Youth Legislators as they prepare for and conduct District Youth Advisory Council and town hall meetings, present testimony before a public body, and develop ideas for legislation to present to the Legislature for consideration. Congratulations on this outstanding achievement!
